Icon disappears but devices works well. I have mouse and headphones, and both work without any problem after suspend (in both cases, when they were off while resuming from suspend, and when they were on). But icon never reappears, it needs system restart to get it back.

My hardware: HP dv6-1308ew, built-in bluetooth, Ubuntu 10.10 (stock kernel).

Bluetooth module description in lsusb: "03f0:171d Hewlett-Packard Wireless (Bluetooth + WLAN) Interface [Integrated Module]".

This is a temporary fix that you can implement without rebooting, but the bug still needs to be remedied.

After resuming from suspend the bluetooth icon will indeed be gone from the panel. That is because the process "bluetooth-applet" is not running.

To fix, press Alt+F2 to get the "Run Application" window and type in the command "bluetooth-applet" and run. The BT icon is back with all its neat features w/o having to restart the machine.

Sadly that doesn't work for me. The icon appears, but I only get a menu with two options: "Turn Off Bluetooth", and "Preferences". If I click "preferences" I get a dialog that says "Bluetooth is disabled", and a "Turn on bluetooth" button. If I press it, nothing changes, and after choosing preferences again I get the same dialog.

This is reported against an old version of Ubuntu and many things has changed since then. Because of that we won't fix this issue however if this behavior repeats on a modern version please fill a bug report against it and we will take it from there.
